I love asian flavors. The sweet and sour taste added to sesame composed for me the ideal dressing. Tempeh is like tofu: a vegan protein and made with soybeans. It’s perfect if you don’t eat meat or if you want a variation. What I really like about tempeh compared to tofu is the texture. It’s more dense and less soft and watery. You can also find it with multi-grains, which is delicious!
